This patten is used to indicate that you are at the start of the automatic sequence mode. It consists of only 6 steps that all are run in about 8/10ths of a second. The sequence is designed so that it automatically wraps giving the illusion of the LEDs marching around the edge of the tree. A real astute observer may notice that the two green LEDs on the bottom of the tree both end up on at the same time because there isn't actually a perfect multiple of 3 LEDs around the edge of the tree. Once the Marquis has run 44 times it advances on to the next pattern.
